Obamacare repeal

We all know that the Republican Party owes its current political dominance every bit as much to grassroots opposition to the so-called Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") as it does to the adept manipulation by the Koch brothers of the electoral and legislative processes. However, it would appear that the Republican congress lacks the will to either replace or even just repeal former President Barack Obama's signature legislative accomplishment. As one might expect, this has led to no small amount of rhetorical keening from the hard right of the US Internet.

I find this only worth noting as a possible "latest nail in the coffin" of our political class and its two-party system. Not that anything good will necessarily replace them, as these nails are being pounded by the inexorable progress of industrial society's slow collapse. After all, such collapses usher in bad things just as readily if not more so than good things.

Mid-winter linky goodness

Paul Street writing at Counterpunch.org serves up some Truth Tea about the outgoing Obama Administration.

And Glenn Greenwald writing Theintercept.com tells us that the Deep State and their Democratic Party lackeys continue to be as horny as a teenage boy with sex on his mind for World War Three with Russia, which will only make the Democratic Party fuck itself in the long haul. To which I say, "Boo-fucking-hoo."

To be quite honest, I see a nuclear war with Russia or China in the not-to-distant future. There may be less nukes around than there were during the Cold War, but it only take a pretty limited mutual thermonuclear warhead exchange to bring about a nuclear winter followed by what one might call an "ultra-violet summer". Now is probably a good time to make your peace with your Higher Power.

You are being lied to, and if you vote for Republicans or Democrats, you're a patsy

Washington, DC and New York City based mainstream publications and websites are the real fountains of fake news in our society.

Since McCarthy lists are now back in vogue, I will contribute my own list of publications and websites you should avoid in order to prevent terminal brain-rot:

Newspapers:

The Washington Post

The New York Times

Magazines:

The Atlantic

The New Yorker

Websites:

The Huffington Post

The Daily Beast

There are more, but this list is only for the most egregious offenders.

And apologies for the dickered link up above, it has been fixed.

The rich and the powerful really do engage in viciously abusive child sex-trafficking



"Pizzagate" is probably a false-flag psy-op designed to discredit the promotion of the Wikileaks information. However, child sex-trafficking is a real thing that is happening, and Bill Clinton is personally implicated in it. And as far as I'm concerned, Bill and Hillary Clinton are a political tag-team, so the sins and crimes (of which there are many) of one are the sins and crimes of the other as well.

Russian hacking mind-control psy-op bullshit

David Lindorff serves up the Truth Tea.

Let's say for the sake of discussion that the Russians did furnish the Wikileaks information. Wouldn't that simply mean that the they simply did the job that the mainstream media should have been doing by making the public aware of information that was absolutely true? The Democratic Party Kool-Aid drinkers have been sinking to such brand-new lows lately that I don't think I will ever vote for another Democrat ever again. (And I was mostly at that point already. Anyone who doesn't like it can fucking suck it.)
